Using little more than an iPod and a school computer, Gagliolo and her students have been making podcasts -- online radio shows that can be downloaded to an iPod or other portable MP3 player. Avidly discussing their favorite iPod colors and models while they made recordings of their poems and book reports the other day, the fifth-graders bubbled with ideas for future subjects."We could read parts of books, to show why we like them. We could do interviews. If there's a field trip, we could make a recording of it and post it," said Mohamed El-Sayed, 10. "Kids anywhere will like to hear about us." - Fern Shen, The Washington Post; Photograph by Tracy A. Woodward, The Washington Post
